Lenovo Flex 3 1580 80R4 how do i clean under keys?

I have a lenovo flex 3 1580 80r4 laptop the one with the nvidia 940m graphics card, this one ->



anyways my daughter got a few drops of something sticky (soda) under the keys, it wasnt enough to damage anything, but now a few of the keys are a bit sticky when u press them, my question is how do you remove the keys one at a time without breaking them, i heard laptop keys are easy to break, and im pretty sure there is some kind of clips holding them, anyone know? thanx

Hi TheLongshot,


Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!


Have you had a look for any videos/tutorials online? As explaining the process may be difficult and I don't believe it's mentioned in the hardware manual. I would imagine though that the process is somewhat similar for many keyboards and there are clips holding them into position. If you're worried about breaking the keys, then it might be worth looking into getting some compressed air dusters as that may also do the trick. If not, hopefully someone with the Flex 3 who has done such a job can of most assistance.
